As the name suggests, a proximity sensor is used to detect the presence of objects at a certain distance without the need for any kind of physical contact. The fact that no physical contact is required results in higher durability of these kinds of sensors. Technology advances have aided in miniaturization and proximity sensors can now be integrated into small chips and be used for a plethora of applications. Main customers for proximity sensors are original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The automotive segment represents the most lucrative market for proximity sensors. The development of self-driving cars, for example, will result in a huge boost for proximity sensors owing to the need to be able to detect the proximity of objects in relation to the vehicle.
